Part of the reason for Flickr’s enormous popularity is their open API that supports a large number of so-called Apps, which are third party software that make your flickr experience more fun and useful.
In the past, there was no centralized location for Flickr Apps. Users had to look for them on the web. Developers had to promote their apps using their own websites. It all changed yesterday. Flickr has made a home for these third-party apps called App Garden.
The App Garden does not automatically list all the apps created using Flickr API. Developers have to submit them. There aren’t many apps there yet one day after its launch but we can be certain it will change soon. You may want to check out the five cool apps picked by ReadWriteWeb.
